Thanks to Daily Journal Corinth Bureau reporter Lena Mitchell for the news that Corinth is getting two new restaurants – Popeye’s and Cracker Barrel.
• While there have been no official plans submitted, Cracker Barrel has received a variance for a big sign for its proposed restaurant in Corinth.
Cracker Barrel will be located at 1900 Highway 72 W, which is just east of the Highway 45/Highway 72 interchange, on a former mobile home lot. Details are still sketchy at this point as to when it might open, how many it will employ, etc.
• The other new restaurant in Corinth is Popeye’s – or should we call it by it’s new official name, Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen?
Anyway, the restaurant is being built near Highway 72 and Cass Street, near Arby’s and across from Wendy’s. No word on its opening, employment, etc. yet, but we’ll pass it along when we get the details.
